New Challenge at Fussy and Fancy

Good morning everyone,

I hope you have all had a good week!! Most of the the DTs that I design for are returning from their summer breaks so apologies in advance, but I will be posting 3 cards today. 

This morning we have a new challenge over at Fussy and Fancy and our lovely Jo is hosting this challenge. She has chosen the theme Anything Goes Mixed Media.

Well that threw me, I am not good at being thrown out of my comfort zone, but below is what I came up with.

I made the flower with pink and white foamiran using the Rosy Owl Flower Dies (AC1) which is the larger of the two sets and popped some stamens into the centre. 

I sprayed the layers of card with Lindy's Starburst sprays cotton candy pink and tiffanylou blue, then glued a few die cuts which I painted  with white gesso and added some more stardust spray. Once dry I used a couple of stencils and applied some modelling paste and some crushed ice.

The happy birthday tiles have also been painted with white gesso and I've place a few MDF bricks here and there also painted with gesso.

 Underneath the flower I have placed a chipboard frame and a bow which is made from wax cotton cord.

The leaves and butterflies have been cut from a couple of Joy Crafts dies and the bird is also made from MDF which has been painted with gesso and I've added some crushed ice whilst the paint was wet.

The pearls are from my stash and the organza ribbon and pearl string is from the Ribbon Girl.

Th winner of this will join us in an upcoming challenge.

I will be popping back in later with another card.

Thank you for popping in.
